Welcome to a rewarding professional career as a massage practitioner. MANZ is committed to the future of the massage therapy industry in New Zealand and if you are currently studying massage therapy we invite you to join MANZ as a Student member.

By joining MANZ as a student you have access to the members only section of the MANZ website, receive the MANZ Magazine and can access resources and support that may assist you in your professional journey. You also receive email notification about employment opportunities and continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities that can be invaluable when you are wanting to see what is available after you complete your studies.

You will also learn about the important role that a professional association plays in advancing the New Zealand massage therapy industry towards credibility, best practice and a professional identity. MANZ does this by setting high standards of practice, promoting the profession of massage, providing rules of conduct and ethics for its members, and promoting quality massage therapy education.

Student membership is FREE for all students studying Massage Therapy at an NZQA approved training institution. Check here to find which providers are NZQA accredited.

On completion of your studies, providing you have been a student member of MANZ, you can upgrade to an RMT member for free (for the remainder of the membership cycle which ends 31 March annually).
